Any WIT in Boston? I'm interviewing for a really exciting opportunity in downtown and would be relocating there after it's safe. Would love to hear about any groups or resources!
Bonus points for intersectionality and welcoming of LGBT individuals (I'm a gender non-conforming butch lesbian). Bonus bonus points for a group that isn't all white.
Also where should I be looking to live? I heard Boston has a lot of racism issues and is very segregated...
Thanks for making this bowl all gender inclusive. The other bowl simply was outdated and lacked any kind of diversity whatsoever at all.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Hello - We are currently recruiting for an HRBP who will lead our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives. The role is remote but will need (when things open back up) to be near San Mateo, Santa Monica, or Miami. Message me if you would like to learn more.

I am frustrated as a Gay Woman who has given her all for 30+ years grinding to be the best. I have been in closet, out of closet, in-between and am tired of it. I want to be VALUED as a human being. I have gone from Rock Star to problem when people "found out". I have trained and promoted hundreds of people and been passed over for promotions because of not being a man. I have trained men with less experience, worse results only for them to move forward. If Diversity is important...prove it!
Does anyone else wish their school had been more up-to-date on STEM when they were a kid? I went to college with some kids who had been practicing and studying code since middle school. I learned about it from the internet in high school enough that I wanted to go to college for it, but I still feel like I started behind everyone else regardless of gender.
Doing a poll here to see the gender split in this bowl. can you lease ‘like’ one of the options below ? (It’s more efficient than each of us typing a separately response)
Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗
Any one in north Jersey (Bergen) interested in hitting some tennis? I am 26M but this ask is gender agnostic.. I am getting fat these days and would appreciate a work out buddy. :)
What do you wish design students would learn in school to ease the transition into needs of business? I have seen an increasing need for more education/inclusion/overlap into other areas of business that depend on design teams so they understand what goes into the process. As well as design teams into the other business teams. This would alleviate tensions and improve quality product delivery due to the major miscommunications that occur so frequently.
Female 🐠, what *helpful* inclusion /diversity initiatives are happening at your firms? Have remit to work on both recruitment and retention activities...
Has anyone on here attended Tuck's Diversity Conference before? If so, what were your thoughts about the experience/benefits?
Someone want to explain the Miami hype to me? A couple of friends are trying to convince me to move down but idk - the food and music scenes are weak, there isn’t much diversity, and the only thing you can wear as a guy is a tshirt. Fine to visit, not sure about living tho.
I keep reminding myself that I still need to work next week because I'm the only one who is not on PTO...
Hey nurses, did you become a CNA first? Or go straight into a nursing program? My cousin wants to become a nurse and, I'm going to be totally frank here, I don't think he can hack it. I recommended that he maybe do his CNA first to get a taste for it, but he's insisting he's prepared to nursing. Part of me is worried because a lottttt of people in my cohort in school were regularly partying and doing hard subs (was this the same for others??), and my cousin is susceptible to peer pressure.
Can anyone refer me in Accenture, please?
Has anyone had any experience with care coordination for Alliance behavioral health? Would love to hear about the work load and environment before I apply 😅
My ex reached out after 2 years and said he still has feelings for me. We dated for a few months and broke up because he moved (and wasn’t sure enough about us to want so LDR), then became friends and caught up every few months. He lost a beloved aunt this summer and said that made him re-evaluate his life. He said he would like to see where things go. He’s a wonderful person and I originally wanted to stay together when he moved but accepted his decision. Continued in commments
@amazon folks - has anyone received an offer on the 5th day following a loop interview? Trying to stay hopeful…

What other jobs can a former business/data analyst do that doesn't require any coding knowledge?
Just got an offer as a Senior Data Analyst after 3 YOE. Completely remote, $135k base, $75k RSUs/4 years. Thoughts?
How would you account for promotional sensitivity of products when you apply weights to a drug portfolio? For example, a drug could be first-in-class and as a result doesn’t have to be promoted as much as another drug which has some competition. We have some weights from sales but how do you include weights for promotional sensitivity on top?
How do Big 4 and other consulting firms compete with tech companies on pay? They seem to think their only competition is other consulting firms but plenty of people are leaving for tech companies and are doubling their pay overnight in many cases
My teenage son is a freshman in high school. He's constantly stressed and anxious even though he's performing extremely well in classes. He's constantly saying he hates everything and is always tired. I've been trying to get him to sleep by 1130 latest and had him download a mindfulness app but he doesn't seem to stick to anything and continues with the negativity. Any tips on how to push through? I'm considering having him set up time with his school counselor but I'm not sure what else to do

How long do people take to decide to commit to someone? I’m 30F and met someone on an app almost 2 months ago. I don’t want to rush into anything but am having a good time so far. I feel like things got too deep too fast with my previous relationships so I want to steadily get to know someone but also don’t want to be wasting my time lol

Everytime I am on LinkedIn, I see the same 3-4 people posting essays on a particular career track, almost on a daily basis, and the same group of people commenting to hype each other up to increase engagement algorithm.
It is quite a turnoff but wondering if it is just me?
I need to make a will. I have used the services ACN has to create my own will but I don’t know how Ironclad it would be. I have kids so I need to make sure guardianship is solid in the will. What kind of lawyer would I need to go to for a will? An estate Lawyer? I have no clue where to start.
Bisexuals are usually gay.
SM2 I don’t get to say what? I cannot own any of the projections you make on my comment to fit your narrative
Yes, bi chick here and the bi guys I’ve been with have tended to be more empathetic, emotionally articulate, non-judgmental. Don’t exhibit as many traits of toxic masculinity
As a straight man, the stigma against bi men is really eye opening here. So many girls will say they are bi and wear it proudly, but when a man is bi he is somehow lesser. Really sad
Bi-erasure and biphobia are so real. It’s disheartening to see :(
It’s a no for me.
A hell no for me.
Some of the answers here made me really sad. It’s interesting to see the difference on the conversations when a woman is bi vs when the man is bi. I would date, already date, and if the future gives me other opportunities, yes, totally would date a bi man. I’m mature enough to keep a conversation open with him to understand if I’m being enough of not, even not having “the equipment”. I believe in trust and communication, and that’s for me much more important than gender.
As a bi man, curious about the no’s here and reasoning? Truly just curiosity around why people wouldn’t prefer to!
Most definitely. Probably preferred, to be honest
I would. My assumption on the reasoning of the “no’s” is because people are concerned about the man cheating since he has more options. But, the same is true with a straight man - there are always more fish in the sea (no matter the gender of said fish). If you’re focused on who your bisexual significant other might be attracted to/ maybe cheating, simply because they’re bisexual, that’s your own insecurity.
As I said I'm ok with that. Like if I fell in love with a man that happened to be bi, I wouldn't dump him over it (I think). But I wouldn't seek out bi men or really pursue relationship with one if I knew from beginning
If you are attracted to him, and him to you, what's the prob?
I'm bi and currently in a committed rel with an f (prior to her I was in a 5 year rel with a m). The sight of a man won't make me run off with him - if that's what you're afraid of. If your question comes from a deeper homo or biphobia, that's another issue.
1000% no. It’s not a masculine characteristic in my opinion.
Since when is it become masculine or feminine?
Yes, and I prefer to (I’m also bi)
As a bi man, I have come to realize I prefer dating bi people. Much more relatable and usually less judgment.
<whispers> you probably already are. 🤷♂️
This is what I tell people when they freak out about the idea of letting people use bathrooms based on gender identity. As a woman, you have most likely been in a bathroom with a transgender woman who has not transitioned, and you didn’t even know it.
I'm a straight dude who is dating a queer chick and we only hang in leftist spaces irl. I just wanna say holy shit this thread was great bait for getting regressives to out themselves. Well done OP.
Straight M here dating a bi F. I love her and she’s an amazing person and her sexual orientation is a complete nonissue. Some of these posts make me sad, accordingly.
Yep 👍🏼 have and would again
That being said I wouldn’t date a bisexual man that exhibits more feminine traits. But that’s more of a preference because on the flip I also wouldnt date a man that’s more “alpha”, bi or straight.
Yes, as long as he was honest upfront
I’m bi and I wouldn’t 🙈 I know it doesn’t make sense buttttt….I rather date men that only have slept with women 🤷🏽♀️
She’s being honest. Cut her some slack.
I wouldn't choose that knowingly. As a straight F, I wouldn't be comfortable dating a guy who I know has an affinity for equipment I don't possess!
Well, you’re kind of rooting your preferences in a judgement too… just saying
